THORNE RESEARCH – Choleast-900
Red yeast rice to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support cardiovascular health*
Choleast-900 provides naturally occurring monacolins, phytosterols, and isoflavones for maintenance of healthy lipid levels.* Red yeast rice also promotes healthy lipid particle size and number.*
Maintaining an optimal LDL cholesterol level is an important component of maintaining good cardiovascular health.* Numerous studies in China and the United States have concluded that preparations of red yeast rice help to maintain blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range.* Choleast-900 contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. It also contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice– without standardization or fortification – along with the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to good cardiovascular health.* With 50-percent more red yeast rice than our Choleast product, Choleast-900 requires fewer capsules for easier supplementation.
